Banner Frame and Natural Designer Button card by Stampin Up and me

Hi dear Stampers.
I hope you had a beautiful Sunday. We had lots of snow here in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I am still not sure if I am ready for all this white stuff everywhere.

Isn't this the cutest sentiment. Stampin Up came up with that one a while ago. the set is now retired, but I still use it so much on many of my cards.


This afternoon I hopped over to the Paper Players Challenge site and did they have a super cute idea for us card makers.
The lovely and super talented Anne Marie is the host of this week's #118 Challenge.
 It is Frames week.
I had so much fun incorporating the frame behind my little girl. My daughter picked and how could I resist her.

Oh, you gotta see these super cute buttons (yah I know, I went a little nuts in taking pictures of them.. I just have a thing for buttons. Kind of a secret crush I have to admit.)
They are the newest addition to the Stampin Up button family.
You can find them on page 176 of your Stampin Up Catalogue 2012/2013. They are called: Naturals Designer Buttons (#127554 - $$6.95)
